Scope and content

Watercolour of Three Mile Church, which is situated on a small hill above a body of water. There is a stone fence to the left, and a house is visible in the trees to the right of the church. There are several "Three Mile" locations in Nova Scotia, but this is most likely Three Mile House, which is now called Fairview, an area inside the modern city of Halifax.
This work is very similar to 1990-207-104, a sketch of Falkland Village, Ferguson's Cove, Nova Scotia. Their supports are exactly the same, and the technique of the watercolour is similar. It is unlikely that Lady Falkland is the artist; the script on the reverse is not hers and the technique of the watercolour seems different. It could have been executed by one of the Haliburton daughters (who
were all amateur artists and travelled with the Falklands), or any of the other amateur artists in Halifax at the time. Lady Falkland's relationship with the local amateur art scene is not well documented.
